Imran Khan to Continue as PM till Appointment of Caretaker Premier

According to Article 224 A of the Pakistan Constitution, Imran Khan will stay Prime Minister until a caretaker Prime Minister is appointed.

Khan was de-notified as Pakistan’s prime minister earlier on Sunday following the dissolution of the National Assembly, according to a statement released by the Cabinet Division, according to Geo News.

However, once a notification is published, Imran Khan will remain prime minister for 15 days until a caretaker prime minister is appointed, as per Article 224 of the Pakistani Constitution.

President Arif Alvi also confirmed on Twitter that Imran Khan will continue to serve as Prime Minister for the time being.

“Mr. Imran Ahmad Khan Niazi shall continue as Prime Minister until a caretaker Prime Minister is appointed under Article 224 A (4) of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan Constitution,” he wrote.

Despite the fact that he will be prime minister for a few days, he will not have the authority to make choices that an elected head of government would be able to make.

“Mr. Imran Ahmad Khan Niazi ceased to hold the Office of Prime Minister of Pakistan, with immediate effect, as a result of the president of Pakistan dissolving the National Assembly in terms of Article 58(1) read with Article 48(1) of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, vide Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs’ SRO No. 487(1)/2022, dated 3rd April 2022,” said the Cabinet Division notification.

Imran Khan was de-notified just hours after ex-NA deputy speaker Qasim Suri dismissed the no-confidence motion against him, calling it “unconstitutional” and claiming it was backed by “foreign powers.”

On the advice of the ex-premier, President Arif Alvi dissolved the National Assembly under Article 58(1) read with Article 48(1) following the dismissal of the no-confidence vote.
